The interior multipurpose hall is 7500 square feet. One of the great public spaces in New York.



On the site of Eyebeam's new 90,000 square foot building to be completed in 2005, the existing taxi garages were renovated to provide a 7500 square foot multipurpose hall, artist in residence studios, classrooms and meeting spaces. As this is intended as a temporary space, the architectural interventions are minimal.
